If you’re driving down the road in Kelantan on the way to a north Malaysian town called Jeli, be prepared to see some pretty unusual items being sold at the roadside.
One such spine-tingling bit of merchandise turned out to be eels, still alive and writhing around in plastic bags.
While the actual translation of Ikan Keli is catfish, these looked like eels. Maybe the blue plastic container at the foot of the photo was for the catfish.
The vendor should consider opening a Japanese grilled eel restaurant here to improve his profit margins.
Later that same day another slithery thing was spotted, draped over a milestone.
Not something you see every day, even in Malaysia!
